It’s that time of year again where the weather is getting warmer, the sun is putting in an appearance from time to time, and with that come the creepy crawlies*!!

This has always been a bit of an issue in the Slothy household, and I’m often to be found trying to catch a spider at 3am or chasing a fly around the bathroom any hour of the day or night!

If only they could learn to respect our personal space, all would be well, but alas they do not! A sudden buzzing in the ear. A movement in the corner of the eye. It can be enough to have our nerves in shreds.

We have tried sometimes to name them and that can help. We had a small spider named Jeff who lived in the living room for a few months a few years ago, and we missed him when he left!

We’ve also found that learning about the little critters and understanding them a bit more can help to de-mystify them, and make them slightly easier to tolerate.

But certainly the whole ‘oh don’t be silly, there’s nothing to be scared of’ kind of attitude is at best unhelpfu! The distress we feel is real, and comfort and validation of our experiences is invaluable.

What are your feelings around the creepy crawlies?

(I am in England/UK and realise there may be even greater challenges for people in other parts of the world)

(*I say creepy crawlies as not everything are insects. Spiders are arachnids, and slugs are part of the mollusc family apparently!!)

***INSPIRED MIND – HARRY’S BLOG***
(POETRY CORNER)

The following poem was written over 20 years ago and it was an emotional flow of being proud and believing in yourself.

Autism at this time felt like a limitation on my life being only diagnosed in 1998 but I wanted to demonstrate that there was definitely no shame.

And that's the point.

***

(PRIDE)

Be proud of what you are.

Be happy with your individual existence.

Be excited about the days ahead.

Be positive of everything laid down on your hands.

Be beautiful on the inside.

Be the ignition for the spark of hope.

Be the one that leads the everything into the nothing.

Be proud, have pride, boast pride.

***
